This is the first time we have been back since the refurbishment. While it does look very classy we did prefer the old look. It was more cosy! The food has not changed - still the best steaks in town with a great wine selection and excellent service! Had the Caesar salad (my favourite) and a Angus fillet with tin... More

Superb steaks sources from the best farms around the word and cooked to perfection. The waiter (Butch) was superb and clearly enjoys his job. He is a credit to the restaurant.

My wife and I just had great steaks there last night. Medium rare tenderloin- just melted in your mouth!! Recently re-opened after remodeling. Now more classy, but we miss the cow horn napkin rings. Can't beat the price when using our Rotana card (one entree free, 20% off drinks.)

My stay at the Beach Rotana recently was an impromptu one. After checking in at around 7pm, three of us decided to step down for dinner. While they were fully booked, Nelson (in charge that night) made us comfortable while trying to arrange a table - which he did in ten minutes. Which, as it turns out, was very lucky... More
